2 lb of hay. For conversion of this ration composition to an as-fed basis, and for simplicity’s sake in this example, all feeds are assumed to be 90% dry matter. 4 lb of hay. From a practical standpoint, we recommend offering the ewes free-choice hay, supplemented with 2 lb of a corn–soybean meal mixture that contains 90% corn and 10% soybean meal.

Without adequate fiber in the diet, normal rumination does not occur. In sheep, feeding a concentrate-based diet with limited amounts of fiber results in “wool pulling” as the animals seek a roughage source. To promote a healthy rumen, the dietary fiber content generally should be greater than 50%. 28 Chapter 2 • Feeding and Nutrition Fiber also is required in the diet to maintain acceptable levels of milk fat. The particle size of the fiber is important. 5 cm is appropriate to stimulate normal rumination, although the effect of smaller particles is not well documented in sheep and goats.

If a frank deficiency exists, a cobalt-supplemented trace mineral mixture should be fed ad libitum. 2 Iron Iron deficiency in sheep and goats is quite rare under grazing conditions. Lambs or kids raised in total confinement and deprived of access to pasture and earth-floored stalls or paddocks may become deficient, however. Iron deficiency is exacerbated when young animals are fed a milk replacer deficient in iron. Newborn kids and lambs are born with minimal iron stores. Iron is an important component of hemoglobin, and a deficiency can result in microcytic-hypochromic anemia.
